Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $3(n-2)=8$ We apply the distributive property to expand the left side of the equation: $3n-6=8$ We add $6$ to both sides of the equation: $3n-6+6=8+6$ $3n=14$ Next, we divide by $3$ on both sides of the equation: $\frac{3n}{3}=\frac{14}{3}$ $n=\frac{14}{3}$
